Dischidia is a genus of epiphytic vines belonging to the family Apocynaceae, native to Southeast Asia, Australia, and the Pacific Islands. The plants in this genus are known for their unique appearance, as they have specialized leaves that form small, balloon-like structures that can trap water and nutrients.
The leaves of Dischidia species vary in size and shape depending on the species, but they are typically small and succulent, and grow in opposite pairs along the stems. The flowers of Dischidia are also unique, as they are small and grow inside the balloon-like structures formed by the leaves.
